Numerous studies report that athletes to be more religious than non-athletes.[1]

Howard Gardner at Harvard University has identified various distinct intelligences: interpersonal, intrapersonal, visual–spatial, verbal–linguistic, logical–mathematical, musical–rhythmic, bodily–kinesthetic, and naturalistic.[2] See: Theory of multiple intelligences and Atheism and the theory of multiple intelligences

Bodily-kinesthetic intelligence involves intelligence related to body movement, performing actions and physical control. It involves strength in physical movement and fine motor control.[3] Social science data indicates that atheists are less involved in sports than theists and that religious beliefs tend to increase sports performance (see: Sports performance: Religious faith vs. atheism).

Furthermore, there is scientific data indicating that fitness increases IQ tests scores.[4]

Atheism and dance[edit]

"Jewish Dance" Alexandr Onishenko, 1999 Judaism has a long tradition of Jewish dancing. For example, dancing is a major part of Jewish weddings.

Many religions and cultures have religious dances that people take part in. For example, Wikipedia, a wiki founded by an atheist and an agnostic, has an article entitled "List of Christian dance, electronic, and techno artists".[5] Wikipedia has no articles which focus on atheist dance.

In addition, dance is deeply a part of African life. According to the book African Dance, "Dance is the soul of Africa".[6] Africa has one of the lowest rates of atheism and nones in the world.[7] See also: Western atheism and race

Western World atheism has no tradition of dancing (See also: Atheism and culture).

Andrew Brown wrote in The Guardian in an article entitled You can't dance to atheism :

...a religion is a philosophy that makes you dance. It pleased me because the book itself can be read as a history of how philosophy grew from dance...

There aren't any overwhelming and inspiring collective atheist rituals...

If I'm right, then liberal, individualistic atheism is impossible as an organising principle of society because any doctrine that actually works to hold society together is indistinguishable from a religion. It needs its rituals.[8]

As far as nontheistic Buddism, an article entitled A Rare Day of Buddhist Dances declares:

As Buddhism grew and spread from India, its views and practices absorbed, rather than annihilated, the cultural heritage of its host countries, including traditions traditions of dance and movement. Most of the dances are therefore, very old, or at least have very old elements contained within them. Buddhism emphasizes meditation...[9]

The largest populations of the irreligious in Africa reside in Southern African countries such as South Africa, Mozambique, and Botswana. Irreligion in Ghana has also been the subject of some study by the atheist Phil Zuckerman.[11] Irreligiosity is also growing in the Islamic region of North Africa - especially in Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria. None of these areas are world renowned in terms of having long distance running champions.

Kenya is known for its long distance running champions and its marathon runners are considered to be the best.[12] The dominant religion in Kenya is Christianity, which is adhered to by approximately 85% of the total population.
